to come out with some type of his own statement about where he wants to go with the nsa controversy and the transparency going on with its oversight. >> yes, thomas. we've been working our sources within the administration and on capitol hill. we have a bit of a picture of what the president plans to do. he can go on offense, anticipating, i'm sure, about the nsa leaks and the programs that the intelligence community has been undertaking to collect data and so forth. by going on offense, the president is expected to announce that he has plans to take steps to make reforms to some of those programs. with the intention of bringing greater transparency and to build more public confidence. these will be new steps, and he will lay them out in the specifics, but that's the overarching idea, how to create more confidence when there have been so many questions in the public about what these programs can do, the scope of them, the magnitude, and how to bring about more transparency. what could be declassified? we've seen steps toward that already with some of the details of these programs no

the question is it possible some of your sources were using you to justify the nsa, coverage of the nsa program or to kind of obscure human intelligence, assets, and saying it was signals intelligence? >> sure, first to fran's point it's totally true this is one of many and one piece of information in a broad collection that the u.s. intelligence community has engaged in. this meeting was significant according to officials and reports in both "the new york times" and lots of other outlets because it was where the vague discussion of impending attack was discussed and if you look at the embassy closings around the world it matches the people on the call. so you can sort of understand why the u.s. government took such a broad approach. as for it being motivations in taking the risk, i can't speak to that. some of them they take risks on. this seems to be a risk they didn't take. as far as some of the other reporters linking this to the nsa and snowden and what have you, it's important to point out the programs disclosed by snowden are not related to this particular communication particularly inte
were using you to either justify the nsa coverage of the nsa program or to kind of obscure human intelligence, assets and saying it was signals intelligence. >> sure. first to fran's point. it is true it is one of many threat streams and one piece of information in a broad mosaic of a collection that the u.s. intelligence community is engaged in on a regular basis but the meeting was significant according to officials and reports in the "new york times" mcclatchy and other outlets because it is where the vague discussion of impending attack was discussed. if you look at the embassy closings around this world it largely matches the people who were on the call according to to our reporting. you can understand why the u.s. government took a broad brush aproechl as for it being their motivations in taking the risk, i can't speak to that. i would say some communications they hold closely. some they take risk on. this seems to be a risk they didn't take as far as other reporters linking it to the nsa and snowden and what have you. it is important to point out the programs disclosed by
and a half. >> let me switch gears and talk about the nsa surveillance program. the specific plan the president outlined on capitol hill, will it satisfy his critics that he has krit nicks both parties? >> the short answer is no. what has been most interesting is that, yes, he has krit nicks both parties but most of them have been to the left. libertarian republicans and of course liberal democrats. he's had the support of republicans or republican leadership in particular, it's been an area where they actually agree. the house speaker put out a statement saying this is absolutely the wrong thing to do, that he is trying to save face and that he is effectively caving to the liberal wing. as far as the liberal wing goes, they say it's a nice first step but they're going to continue to narrow it. they will have major hearings on this all fall. >> obama care has been a tough battle from the word go and why are conservatives still making an all-out effort against it? let's discuss with our cnn political commentators. let me play another clip from the president defending obama care. >>

surveillance programs. plan that the president said was in the works before edward snowden leaked secret nsa documents to the press. >> there's no doubt that mr. snowden's leaks triggered a much more rapid and passionate response. i actually think we would have gotten to the same place and we would have done so without putting at risk our national security. >> nbc's kristen welker is live at martha's vineyard where the president is expected to arrive shortly. kristen, good to see you. >> reporter: good to see you, too, craig. >> what can we expect from president obama after his vacation? >> reporter: well, craig, i think you're going to hear a lot more about the nsa, as you heard the president say and as you just mentioned. he mapped out sort of his strategy moving forward, announced the fact that there need to be steps taken to enhance transparency of that controversial surveillance program. so he really started to enumerate what he wants to see happen, yesterday during that news conference, take a look at some of what he mapped out. working with congress to reform the nsa program that coll
